I've been following the NBA keenly this year, and my choice for the three hottest teams so far this year are the following.
1. Washington Wizards - I never saw this coming, as I was very skeptical about Michael Jordan's return. But apparently the magic is working, as the wizards have won nine straight.
2. Los Angeles Clippers - Who thought that this team that was 16-66 two years ago, 31-51 last year, is now 15-11 and have won eight of their last ten games. Granted, they've had mostly home games and an easier schedule than most. Yet they are winning when they need to, and are third in the pacific.
3. Boston Celtics - I know nothing about this team except that everytime I check the scores, I see they keep winning. They are probably one of the most underrated team in the NBA, evidence by the fact that I know nothing of them. They've been in the cellar for years, and now perhaps they are returning to the good ol' days of winning.
Apart from these teams there are the Lakers, Spurs, Bucks, and other powerhouses. But these three teams stick out the most to me.
Anybody have any opinions on this? Thanks.
